Senior Accountant Interview

Senior Accountant
Omaha, NE

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Kiewit Corporation in May 2014.

Interview Details – First is phone interview, then after a week, go to office for group interview. I talked with the hiring manager and their team directly. Not very positive feeling. I did not receive any feedback after one week, then I sent email to manager for asking the result. He told me they find the right person already.

Interview Question – Normal questions. Why accounting? why this position?   Answer Question

Engineering Intern Interview

Engineering Intern
Woodcliff Lake, NJ

I applied through college or university and interviewed at Kiewit Corporation.

Interview Details – Submitted Resume during Career Fair where a recruiter looked over it. An email was sent to take a few tests then received an email for a phone screening. During the screening the woman asked if I was looking at any other companies when I said yes, she wanted to know the companies and starting putting the other companies down. Thought it was very unprofessional.

Business Manager Interview

Business Manager

Interviewed at Kiewit Corporation

Interview Details – The interview process went very quickly and was very well done. They even fly you out to whatever district you would be working in. However, I believe they really lead you on. I was given the understanding that we essentially had to just show up to the final interview and get the job. That was not the case.

Interview Question – They were all basic interview questions. No real difficult or unexpected ones. All of them were exactly what you would expect from an employer. "Tell us about yourself, etc" The most unexpected question as probably one that tried to show that I was an analytical person. The question was something along the signs of if a project was running below expected completion what do you need to do to have it complete on time.   Answer Question

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Kiewit Corporation.

Interview Details – one on one interview conducted on campus after career fair. Comfortable setting, but many questions were from pre made question sheet which included bland topics. G.P.A. was most important question. Travel topic was redundant but necessary because they will ship you anywhere. Great company, long hours but pay is worth it.

Intern Interview

Intern
Boulder, CO

I interviewed at Kiewit Corporation in October 2013.

Interview Details – I had an on-campus interview with Kiewit at CU-Boulder after meeting with them at the career fair. The interview was slightly more laid back than others I have had, which was very nice and relieving. The questions were all very reasonable and almost all situational and behavioral questions. There were two interviewers, and both seemed very interested in me, giving me great confidence.

Interview Question – Name a time when you worked with a bad group and what you did to overcome it?   Answer Question

Intern Interview

Intern

I applied through college or university and interviewed at Kiewit Corporation.

Interview Details – Pretty standard questions (who are you, what do you want to do in 10 years, describe your passion, major challenges you've overcome, describe yourself in 5 words, etc.) Make sure to do some research on what branch you'd be applying for and what sort of projects that branch is doing

Interview Question – The 10 years question. Honestly this question is less about the answer and more about the reasoning and alignment with your other stated goals/values/passions.   Answer Question

Field Engineer Interview

Field Engineer

I applied online and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Kiewit Corporation.

Interview Details – I applied online and was later interviewed one on one. I later received an online interview that consisted of 14 questions mostly behavior based questions and situational questions. It was a very interesting process and can be challenging if you don't have interview experience. It was very good practice, just make sure you are prepared for some weird questions and willing to locate immediately.

Interview Question – If you were to pick a cereal that best represents yourself as a manager, what cereal would that be and why?   Answer Question
